"Road-weary coked-out meltdowns".... You must be referring to shows like 12/2 and 12/6/73, two of the finest of the year! (Or 12/19, one of my favorite meltdowns.) Sigh...

I admit the jams were really sweet in early '73 though. Some of those Dark Stars are really pristine & beautiful, like 2/22 or 3/16... And you can't find a bad Playing from that period.

I knew I'd be hearing about that crack!
god love those meltdowns and their fans.... just count me as one for whom a very little bit of that stuff goes a long way.

12/19's Other One is kind of enigmatic to me; I don't think the pre-verses jamming is anything special; it slowly builds into a bubbly jazz jam but doesn't really reach any kind of x-factor.

The meltdown/space is anything but rote though; one of the most awesome meltdowns they ever did imo. Sometimes these can get tiresome or taken too far out into dreamy nothingness for my tastes, but this one has a succinct and ferocious attack that make it one of the best.

The 12/19/73 Other One is all about the meltdown!

Those are great shows, harbingers of what was to come in Feb 74. As it happens today I've been listening to 12/1 (someone pointed out that a matrix was available so I went back to the SBD)and rediscovered how good the UJB out of Playin' is.
